Mapping College ROI, State to State
Have your heart set on staying in your home state for college or university, or want to get the heck out of dodge to a distant locale? Either way, PayScale’s interactive college ROI map has you covered.

This feature lets you visualize college ROI data in several different ways, including:
- 20-year net ROI with or without aid.
- Annualized ROI with or without aid.
- Average aid amount, percent receiving aid, and percent receiving Pell grants.
- Total cost for a graduate.
- Total cost for a graduate, less financial aid.
You can also look up the percentage of STEM degrees in each state — an important number, since STEM disciplines like computer science and engineering tend to have high ROI — at some schools, even higher than majors like business.
Finally, if you want another way into the data, check out our state-by-state list, which will take directly to the highest-ROI schools for each state, and then let you drill down by major, category, and tuition type.
